Picked up a nice carbon frame without decals a few days ago. Thought it is a giant cadex, but i'm not sure.

Seatpost 30,9mm
Frame Number: A6D2947

Some details may help to identify the manufacture/brand. Take a look at the pictures. Thanks!

Similar to a Mongoose IBOC carbon?

When looking those two pictures, I would say it's Giant-Taïwanese made. The carbon fiber tube seems to be the same as cadex

Those pics of Mongooses ( Mongi?) have alloy rear triangles where as the Team SX had a full carbon frame.
Unfortunately all my pics of my old one are on Photobuckshit but i'll have a search for my old build thread.

my first thought was Giant, that had a lot to do with the colour but the Giant looks thicker round the seat/chain stays.
